Cover Story: Adrian Tomine’s Brooklyn

“I think it’s kind of beautiful and hilarious to see people eating their organic kale and quinoa salads while gazing across the opaque, fetid water,” Adrian Tomine says of his cover for this week’s issue, “Gowanus Canal, Brooklyn.” “It’s strange to see the recent proliferation of health-conscious and environmentally conscious restaurants and grocery stores, right next to the piles of scrap and rubble. I guess it proves that there’s no part of the city that can’t be revitalized, recontextualized, or ruined—depending on your point of view.”
